Inner-City, November, Late

The child lay cuddled
against the warmth of it's mother,
and the mother grew cool,
then was warm no longer.
The child took chill,
shivered,
grew cold,
and died,
and there was nothing left,
but the cold,
the cold,
the
cold.

This haunts. What an aching end, sir.

how important, essential, is the mother, your poem has a great and chilly impact indeed, it is "great"

I thought I commented when I first read this, but apparently not. Looks like you got into your bag of writing tools and pulled out a big heart wrench. Excellent job affixing a terrible truth to our minds. ~L
